    Was a new wear sensor fitted? If not fault wonít clear. Reuse of old sensor often wonít succeed.

    A new sensor (correctly installed) and a hard reset should clear the fault light.

    Not sure you even need to do the hard reset. One normal cycle of the ignition cleared mine after fitting a new sensor.

    Yes I agree but the OP still has the light on and the car would have been switched on and off a few times - so the only other option before detailed fault finding is a hard reset.

    I supplied new sensor, pads and rotor. Have to assume it was done correct Brake pad sensor - how far can you go with it on?

    Yeah, has been ignition on and off a few times since leaving the garage.

    Brake pad sensor - how far can you go with it on?

    As noted in the IIDTool manual, U type error codes are just comms issues that are often a side effect of another real fault - so often (not always) can be ignored.

    The water in fuel sensor fault though can be real (or can also be a wiring issue) and can trigger other system faults if not addressed.

    May pay to drain the fuel filter, clean the sensor and check wiring while you are there, and then clear faults again.

    Maxxis AT980 in 19 inch availability

    The new tyre will have better off road capability / durability like the current mud terrain but with the wear rate of an AT.
    Not sure what Iíll get next for after this trip and I hope stock is not going to be hard to find for emergencies. Only 20 of these left in the Townsville distribution centre.
    I checked with Maxxis re the discontinuation; all true and they estimated they will have stock of the existing design for up to 12 months (with normal demand). I asked them (pleaded, actually) to get the new AT tyre in 19 inch for all D4 owners. It's a bit tricky to invest in the current AT980 when, say, you need a replacement in a year or two and there's nothing comparable available. A nasty problem to have.

    Sounds like you've sorted it out already but, if the brake warning message is annoying you, just pull the sensor cable out of the calliper. The wires/connectors are not very tough and sounds like this was the problem to begin with re. brake pad wear. Has happened to me previously. They're cheap and can be considered a consumable when doing the pads.

    As for the U-codes present, the severity of them depends of whether they are from the high-speed or low-speed CANBUS. Your intermittent faults look like they are high-speed and likely directly related to the P-code (any fuelling issues freak out and shut down the TDV6 engine module causing the cascading U-codes - it seems intentional in order to save the HPFP from seeing any air/water..), while the historic are low-speed (not important as they won't stop you).

    The pad wear sensor was replaced with a new one when the rotors and pads were replaced.
